I am a friend or relative of a resident
My grandmother has been in Good Sam Society Pine River for over a decade now. Frequent visits to see her over the past 10+ years provide me with many opinions regarding this facility. Overall, Good Sam provides a home feeling as best can be accomplished in such a facility. The staff appears to be friendly and helpful, but in my opinion should practice being more observant and responsive to residents needs. On several occasions, my grandmother has stopped eating and began a physical decline. Thankfully my mother visits my grandmother 3 - 4 times a week and has literally saved my grandmothers life on a recent visit. It seems the staff at Good Sam tends to ignore signs and symptoms of health issues causing residents to decline. My grandmother has been into the emergency room at the hospital - literally near death with an undetectable pulse - due to Good Sams neglect to call in a physician when my grandmother failed to get out of bed for two days and had failing vital signs. There have been several other occasions where my grandmother stops eating and mostly just sleeps. Again, my mother notices the change in behavior and requests a doctor appointment - and each time this happens, my grandmother is diagnosed with a urinary track infection. In my opinion, this facility would be a scary place to send a loved one if you weren't able to check in on his or her health on nearly a daily basis, because the staff at Good Sam will likely not respond to physical signs of residents needing medical care.
